Our Senior hurlers played An Rinn of Waterford for the Sarah Lonergan Memorial Cup on Friday last in Davin Park. After a hard-fought game, we came out on top by 2 points.
Our Seniors are back in action in Davin Park this Friday evening. We play Tullogher Rosbercon of Kilkenny for the Hawkie Nugent Memorial Cup at 7-30pm. This is our last game before we play Drom/Inch in the Co. Championship so come along and support the lads.
Our Junior B camogie girls continued their preparation for their upcoming championship this week with games against Ballingary and Ferrybank. The Junior camogie will commence once Tipperary’s involvement in the All Ireland camogie championship ceases.
Swan Minors play Moyle Rovers on Wednesday in Fethard at 7-30pm in their opening game of the Championship. Round 2 will be played next Wednesday August 8th, where we play Skeheenarinky/Clonmel Óg in Monroe at 7.30pm.
Our u16s hurled well and had a good win against Granegmockler/Ballyneale last week in Davin Park. It was the second impressive performance in a row, from our u16s, who beat St Mary’s, in Clonmel, the week previously. We take on Killenaule on Monday night in Killenaule. 8pm throw-in.
Our u14s had a good win last Thursday on The Green against Moyle Rovers. We play Kilsheelan, this Thursday on The Green at 7.30pm. This game was originally fixed for Kilsheelan but due to development works on their pitch, it’s going to be played in Carrick.
Both our u12 teams are in action this week. Both teams play Cahir on Tuesday night, on The Green. The first game begins at 7pm.
In the u12 A championship, our boys are currently level with Kilsheelan-Kilcash & Fethard with two of the three teams making the South Semi Final. Swan have all our groups games played while Fethard take on Kilsheelan on Monday night. If either team won that game, Swan will play Monday nights losing team in a playoff for the final semi-final place. If that game ends in a draw, it would mean our boys lose out, narrowly.
Our u6’s continue to grow in numbers each week. Training is going very well, with all the boys and girls really enjoying learning the skills of hurling, and making new friends in the process. We’d ask parents to stick around, and help out when needed, to make it easier for our coaches to provide enjoyable drills and games for the kids. Many hands make light work.
On Sunday last, we opened up the site of our new field development to allow everybody to see the magnificent progress being made. A large crowd attended with everybody in good spirits. Stories of old, and dreams of what’s to come were shared as young and old walked around the site.
We’d like to remind everybody that unauthorised entry to the new field site is strictly forbidden during the construction phase. If you’d like to view the progress, check out our Facebook page, where we’ve uploaded some photos and videos of the work being carried out. The club would like to thank James O’ Neill for taking photos of the site last week.
Our Juvenile lotto jackpot last week was €2,500. There was no winner. Two match 3 winners win €100. The numbers drawn were 12 – 13 – 18 – 27. Next Week’s Jackpot is €2,750. It costs just €2 to enter and you can play through any of our ticket sellers, or online, via our website. Thank you for your continued & appreciated support.
Carrick Swan would like to pass on their condolences to the Walsh family, O’ Hickey place and Galway, and the Walsh family, Killonerry Close on their recent bereavements.
